Friday Inspo

While the weather plummets gradually, the fun to be had resides in bundles of cozy layers, fluffy knitwear and luxurious cashmeres. I actually happen to be in Canada this weekend for a wedding and let me tell you, this place is fackin cold... but I'm having an amazing time catching up with some of my best friends. It's kind of a whirlwind and it's going by at lightning speed, but I know the memories will last forever (and if not, all the instagram pics will). Enjoy the break guys and find all the inspiration you need below xx

Art or Ad?

Fashion Over Reason in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York, Bow & Drape baseball cap, Bottega Veneta intrecciato leather bag, stripes

One of the most awesome things about living in Brooklyn is that you can always expect a twist on anything that would be run-of-the-mill anywhere else. For example, instead of having regular old blown up billboard ads peppered through the streets, the more common approach in my neck of the woods is to go the artist route and paint advertisements on the side of buildings instead.

The backdrop for these pics is actually the painting of an Arcade Fire promo. With bricks as canvases, these pieces are so impressive, larger-than-life, and incredibly intricate. It's pretty mind-blowing to actually watch them in action, their artistry is unparalleled. If you ever have the chance to stumble upon the making of one of these, I urge you to stand and observe for a little while. In the meantime, if you happen to see an ad-mural like this one, take the opportunity to stand in front of it to immortalize your outfit.

Bryant Park

When you're a wee little one, going to the park has a very special recreational connotation. It's the place reserved for playtime with your friends, it's a locale of extreme fun, complete with jungle gym races and sheer downtime pleasure. Once you start tipping the scale into your teens, parks take on another meaning -- it's maybe where you hang out with your clique, partaking in activities not so fit for the child you used to be, but learning from experiences nonetheless.

Once you cross the line into adulthood, parks are no longer synonymous with monkey bars or baseball diamonds, but they're still very much a place of serenity and leisure. It's where you take a blanket and lay out a beautiful picnic spread, it's the place where you dream of taking the latest best-seller you've been dying to start and getting lost for hours in its pages while the sun shines down on your face. It's also the default destination you make your way to with Fido three times a day...

Parks take on different implications depending on the timing of your life, but they remain a place of fun throughout the years. And if you live in a city setting, they're a little oasis in the midst of all the noise and the hubbub of the daily grind. Bryant Park is one of those places in middle of what I consider to be one of Manhattan's worse areas. Its a giant park that spans an entire block right behind the New York Public library. Adding to its charm are cafés, bars and seating within, along with a huge slice of turf in the middle for people to take that breather between the chaos. It also boasts a skating rink in the wintertime to bring that extra touch of park magic among the hustle and bustle.

If you find yourself in the area on your Big Apple visit, make it a destination. You won't regret it.

Friday Inspo

We're already halfway through October and time just seems to be going by even faster by the day. I suppose that's what happens when you're crazy busy, right? The week's been a little schizo in terms of weather, raining and crappy mid-week and beautiful the rest of it. What I can't complain about, however, is the fact that it's been unusually warm and clement for this time of year. Today is set to be another one of those perfect blue skies with the sun shining down at just the right temperature. Hopefull that's foreshadowing for the rest of the weekend and I'll be raising my glass to that tonight. Enjoy the moodboard guys xx
